The Laurels at Landhope
This weekend we went to The Laurels, a big combined driving event held minutes away from where I grew up. For some strange reason I had never gone there before, perhaps because I didn't have much interest in driving. Maybe if I had gone before I would have known that 2 days of rain equals an incredibly muddy mess and I should just stay home. A combined driving event is much like a 3-day event with a dressage phase the first day, a cross county marathon the second and cones the third day which is the driving equivalent of stadium jumping except you get penalties from knocking the little balls off the cones the driver must maneuver around. I wanted to go for the more exciting marathon phase but it was raining. So we schlepped through the mud to watch a few people compete, checked out some really gorgeous, and I'm guessing by the lack of attendees, under appreciated art. For $5 a car it wasn't bad. I would definately go again if it wasn't muddy.
This weekend I also finished my Appy Halloween sign and a new Headless Horseman sign. Finished 6 pendants, two larger ones feature the Headless Horseman. All will be on Ebay this week!
